Are you contemplating investing in real estate? However you do not have enough money to do this. Right here is a tip you can use as long as the person selling the property is willing to negotiate with you.
To be fair, not every seller will be willing (or even understand) the concept outlined. Your very best wager is to locate a land that the owner has great interest in selling, whether because of moving, a divorce settlement, or frustration with tenants.
Actually, if you maybe currently renting and thinking about using this approach perhaps your landlord would be glad to help you out! There are a few variations that could be used depending on you and your seller. Do they need the market price or are they just desperate to get out of the monthly payments – perhaps facing foreclosure?
The simplest way is to take over their mortgage payments – called ‘assuming’ the mortgage. You will have to be approved by the first lender to assume the mortgage. If you cannot get approved for an assumable mortgage you may also try a ‘subject to’ assumption where you merely make repayments while the property remains in the seller’s name.
You take over the first mortgage and get a 2nd mortgage on the remaining cost of the property with the seller. Offer a high, interest-only payment for a short time frame – 2 or 3 years. Instead of having the money sit in a bank they could be getting a high interest over 2 or 3 years with the remainder due in full at the end of the term.
When the term ceases you ought to be able to refinance the cost, or else you can sell. Unless you struck a real bad market the value of the home should have risen in that time.
Most mortgage lenders merely need to make a great investment. While your local bank may still shy away there are plenty of financial lenders that would wish to make a deal. Financiers like real estate. The mortgage is usually based on 60-70% of the value of the land, so as long as they understand they get their money back in the value of the land if you default, they do not care what kind of money you make. Conclude the deal with a 2nd mortgage done with the seller. In case you default they could eventually foreclose on the property and sell it, settling the existing mortgage in the proceeds.
Now you can see the entire picture. It is good that seller and buyer can work together. In the event they can’t wait for a sale, you could still give them their asking price with a little versatility on their part.
